Karen Holmes is a consummate professional, but additionally she is a delightful person. She is always willing to provide explanation and instruction which is very much appreciated. She also has a wonderful sense of humor and I always feel at ease in her presence. I particularly like her manner with the medical students that she instructs: clear direction given with care and kindness. She is such an asset. I don\'t look forward to having my knees stuck but since it must be done, I feel lucky that she is the practitioner. A real asset to BS&W.

BS&W has provided excellent care to me in the past. This most recent visit was concerning knee problems and possible knee replacement surgery. Karen Holmes (PA) was scheduling me with a new surgeon coming from (I think) Chicago. I sure this Dr. is a great Dr. ( all doctors I\'ve seen w/BS&W had been great Doctors), but I\'m concerned with a new Dr. coming in, not being familiar with new hospitals, routines / practices and being one of the ginea pigs. I have since set up apptmt with another specialist outside the BS&W community.

She asked me lots and lots of questions to ensure she had a good idea of what is going on. Love that she did. She also did some motion tests on me to help on her evaluations. She explained everything in simple terms for me to understand. Also, explained on what next steps we can take and the pros and cons of each.
